Thanks Justin. That extra mirror flipping for PDAF during FCLV is really annoying! Now I know why it's necessary. Since I sold off my 18-55 lens I no longer have a lens that will work with CDAF --

You don't lose much. CDAF on the A580 is VERY slow (can easily take 4-6 seconds to focus a shot). Only really useful with tripod and static subjects.
